Insertion of an Intrauterine Device (IUD) After Medical Abortion
The purpose of this study is to determine the expulsion and continuation rate of an intruterine device (IUD) placed immediately after medical abortion.
Our hypothesis is that immediate-placement of an IUD after completed medical abortion will have a similar expulsion and continuation rate to traditional placement (4-6 weeks after pregnancy).
